I am being sent through UWM to serve with partnering ministry Go To Every Nation (GoTEN) who’s focus is on reaching unreached people groups. I will serve with them by engaging refugee communities in Phoenix, Arizona. Since 1980, Arizona has resettled almost 90,000 refugees from unreached people groups in places like Iraq, Syria, Iran, Myanmar, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Nepal, and Afghanistan. My team lives in low-income apartment complexes alongside these refugees in order to build relationships and demonstrate God’s love in tangible ways through helping with language learning, job acquisition, and life skills. The hope is that through forming these relationships, the compassionate love of God will be shared and the gospel of Jesus Christ will be introduced so that disciple-making movements will grow—both in Phoenix and across the world. I believe that the Gospel shared locally will spread globally and am excited to be a part of a team that is bringing this about.

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray that God will bless the relationships that I form in this position and will use them to further glorify Him.
  • Please pray for more opportunities for the Church to get involved with the work GoTEN is doing and for more local hearts to be burdened for refugees and unreached people groups.
  • Please pray that through my time in Phoenix, I will see hearts come alive with the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
